Wing Tattoo Designs

Origins
One type of tattoo designs that is becoming highly popular is wings. Wing tattoo designs can exhibit grace, beauty, and power depending on the design. Just a tiny set of wings can show off whatever emotion you want Here are several different wing versions so that you can find the best style for you:

Butterfly Wings
These are probably the most colorful of all the wing design tattoos. If you are the sort of person who enjoys bright, vibrant tattoos, this could be the design for you. Some people prefer the wings to cover their entire backs. However, such large tattoos with a lot of color can easily take a large chunk out of your wallet. For those working with less money, the pair of wings can be smaller or in black and grey. And lets not forget about the typical “butterfly on the shoulder”! It’s a classic, sexy look that will always be popular.

Angel Wings
The primary reason people choose this particular design is due to its meaning and symbolism that goes with angels. The wings are likely to hint that that person is spiritual. Of course, many nonreligious people opt for angel wings because of their outward and obvious beauty. Tattoos mean something different to each person. With full back coverage, angel wing tattoo designs can appear to be “real”. This is a major reason that many people get this tattoo. Also, angel wings are usually cheaper than butterfly wing tattoos of equal size because little to no color is used. This style doesn’t necessarily need to be on your back, either. Other popular spots are wrists and the back of necks.

Demon Wings
Demon Tattoos are similar to angel wing tattoos because both have spiritual meaning. However, the meaning for these tattoos can be quite different. These designs are not quite as popular as the other wing tattoos, but they have quite a popular fan base among certain groups. They are usually done in black and grey, but there’s nothing saying that you can’t use color. The most popular colors for this style are reds, purples and blues.

Fairy Wings
Fantasy tattoo designs are ever popular, and fairy wings are no exception. This design mostly appeals to women, but men might also like the beautiful colors and designs. Again, it’s all about what the tattoo means to you. Although these wings are colorful like butterfly wings, this design will probably be less expensive. This is because the colors normally associated with “fairies” are pastels and other cooler shades. This means there will be less ink than the heavy inking for butterfly designs.

This article is merely a guideline. Choose the tattoo style that is most appropriate for you! And, as always, pick a wing tattoo design that you won’t regret 30 years from now!
